We are writing to update you on our progress and to ask for your continued support. Based on the success of the 2020 Maytober Sale and thanks to the continued generosity of Jody Close, President, Smith Auctions LLC, we are announcing our second annual Maytober Sale. Donated items will be either incorporated into the October cycle of Smith auctions (equipment - sporting goods & firearms – house hold, collectibles & art) or put into a separate Maytober Sale closing November 3rd (equine, entertainment & services). 100% of the sale price on donated items will go to Friends of the St. Croix County Fairgrounds.

Many of you are aware of “Renovations for the Generations”, a comprehensive capital fund drive to update and improve the Fairgrounds for generations to come. Many businesses and individuals have consistently supported our annual fund raising events for which we thank you.

The total scope of the capital fund drive includes the dairy complex, horse barn(s), a livestock facility and a four season, multi-purpose building. A key objective of the Renovations Project is to ensure continued vibrant support of the County’s rich agricultural fair heritage which dates back to the first Intercounty Fair held in 1910. Thanks to the great support of our county community, much has been done – much remains to be done. 

The latest project, the Multi-species Livestock Barn put into service for the 2021 Fair, received many positive comments including “amazing, wide open design – great layout for animals, exhibitors & spectators, excellent ventilation, bright & airy”.  “Overall, a great, much needed addition to our County Fairgrounds”!  Our current stretch goal is to raise sufficient funds to retire the 5 year Livestock Barn loan in 3 years – which we are making great progress on.

Please consider making a donation/consigned item that can be sold at this year’s Maytober Sale and signing up to be a buyer.

Thank you for considering our project, all of us working together can make great things happen!
